ESR Review, Volume 16 No. 1, 2015
Author: CLC Socio Economic Rights Project
Published: May 12, 2015

This is the first issue of the ESR Review in 2015. For the realisation of socio-economic rights, 2015 began on a high note with South Africa’s long-awaited ratification of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). This issue includes an article by Usang Maria Assim that summarises South Africa’s initial report to the African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC), reviewing South Africa’s progress towards the realisation of children’s socio-economic rights. Gladys Mirugi-Mukundi examines the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal in City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality vs Hlophe, which found that the fundamental constitutional value of accountability requires municipal officials to see to it that municipalities under their control obey court orders.
